Re: Rebuilt battery from India anyone?
A few years back te antique trade was flooded with clocks from India and they turned up at auctions and unsuspecting people bought them as they really looked the part as you have guessed they were mixtures of bits and pieces some new some old but carefully put together the often came to me for repair as they never worked or kept time
Then I had to inform them of the problems and to save them money it was easier to replace the works with a good quality Quartz movement..
There ware also Horn type grama phones being produced the horns were made out of Dulux paint tins soldered together and beautifully painted bu the actual works were a rough copy with a weak spring that would only run for half a 78 record..
Thank you for your support...
